Design focus – 10 ways to add colour accents to a bathroom scheme

Injecting a high-impact pop of colour is a great way to add individuality, create drama and give a small space a big personality – we round up 10 products in vivid shades for bathroom designs with a difference.

1. The Bespoke range from Burlington rethinks the traditional with some delicious dopamine brights, so classic basins and WCs come in Cosmic Green, Confetti Pink and Enchanted Blue, pictured, for a cool contemporary update. Perfect for those homeowners who are after a bold focal point, or keen to personalise their space in a playful way.

2. Colour was a high priority for leading designer Christian Werner when he was working on his project with Duravit and his design studio spent 3 months developing the final colour palette. This scheme features the Vitrium washing area and the DuraSquare bathtub in a strong cinnamon shade, with wallpaper from Graham & Brown adding some extra drama.

3. Utopia's extensive range of door finishes is constantly updated to anticipate and reflect consumer demand. Currently there are 23 door finishes on offer, including bold blues, subtle pinks and vibrant greens. Modular furniture is also a particularly good choice for those wanting one concentrated colour pop, as a spectacular focal point can be created using just a single vibrant piece – pictured here is the company's YOU modular furniture range in Blush.

4. For 2024, Acquabella says it has embraced vivid colour palettes to help add energy to bathroom spaces and create a stimulating environment. Pictured here is the Kivu worktop from the new AcquaSolid collection, alongside Show furniture, the Alma Slate shower tray, and the Noon Slate bathtub adding a stunning focal point in rich Burgundy.

5. Sonas is taking colour co-ordination in the bathroom to a new level with cross category colour-matching possibilities – brand-new coloured wetroom panels have been added to complement the furniture collection. Available in 9 colours from the Scandinavian Collection; including Morning Sky Blue, pictured here, Cashmere Pink and Wreath Green, this range is intended to help designers create harmony across an entire scheme.

6. This statement Modular Basin Unit in Matt Deep Blue from Bathrooms to Love by PJH, is teamed here with brushed brass handles and brushed brass basin unit frame, and Luxey marble-effect washbowl and brushed brass brassware, ladder radiator, lighting, mirror and shower for a truly opulent look. Golden accents from a range of products and accessories lift the deep blue theme to create a truly sophisticated space.

7. The homeowner of this cloakroom wanted the space to have a 'wow' factor so Ripples chose a statement blush pink concrete basin with a unique fluted design to create a focal point in the room. As the opposite wall features fewer products, the designer selected a bold jellyfish print wallpaper to create interest. To balance out the stark white tiles and the deep black wallpaper, they incorporated a warm wood tone for the vanity unit.

8. This Ripples client wanted to create an en-suite for specific use in the winter months so choosing a colour that encapsulated this was an important part of the design. This deep warming shade (Brinjal by Farrow & Ball) used on the panelling behind the WC was chosen to embrace the cosy feeling of winter and helps the space feel timeless, which suits the Edwardian property well. It also conceals pipes and parts while simultaneously creating a design statement.

9. Tapping into the movement for mixing materials and adding personalisation to the modern bathroom, BagnoDesign's Monroe washbasin can be chosen in jewel tones of Blue, Pearl or Green, pictured, as well as metallic finishes including Gold, Matt Gold, Copper, Platinum and Platinum Matt. Designed without an overflow for a seamless finish, the basin measures 400 x 130mm.

10. The bathrooms at the 25hours Hotel Hafencity in Hamburg include Bette’s glazed-steel BetteFloor shower trays in a range of colours, including warm tone Carneol (pictured) to add a pop of colour in the showering area and co-ordinate with the tiles.
